Autoworld will be celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, and you could be winning RM1,000. How? KON explains.
OK, we know the title would sound better with ten, but a thousand was the final offer from our accountant, so that’s the carrot we’ll dangle out to you guys. So, what’s the story? Why the sudden offer of a cash prize?
Well, it all happened one fine day when browsing the web, I stumbled upon the text of a speech by Datuk Amar Leo Moggie in the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water’s website. It turned out that the good minister, then the Energy, Communications and Multimedia Minister, had graced Autoworld’s massive launch back in 1999.
Yes, 1999, or to be precise, 9 Nov 1999. The significance hit me immediately. Autoworld will be turning ten end of this year. We immediately decided that it is a milestone that must be marked and celebrated. We are celebrating not only our enduring popularity, but also the unending support of all our members, readers and forummers, for all of you are the underlying pillars of our success.
To celebrate our upcoming birthday, we have a few things in store for you guys, all of which will be revealed one-by-one over the next couple of months. First up is our “Design Autoworld’s 10th Anniversary Logo” contest. The deal is simple; submit to us your proposed logo to commemorate our tenth anniversary. You can send as many entries as you can, but there will only be one winner. That winner will take home one thousand ringgit.
